Aims and Scope
Biosensors are defined as analytical devices incorporating a biological material, a biologically derived material or a biomimic intimately associated with or integrated within a physicochemical transducer or transducing microsystem, which may be optical, electrochemical, thermometric, piezoelectric, magnetic or micromechanical (Turner et al., 1987; Turner, 1989). Biosensors & Bioelectronics is the principal international journal devoted to research, design, development and application of biosensors and bioelectronics. It is an interdisciplinary journal serving professionals with an interest in the exploitation of biological materials and designs in novel diagnostic and electronic devices including sensors, DNA chips, electronic noses, lab-on-a-chip and μ-TAS. Biosensors usually yield a digital electronic signal which is proportional to the concentration of a specific analyte or group of analytes. While the signal may in principle be continuous, devices can be configured to yield single measurements to meet specific market requirements. Examples of Biosensors include immunosensors, enzyme-based biosensors, organism- and whole cell-based biosensors. They have been applied to a wide variety of analytical problems including uses in medicine, biomedical research, drug discovery, the environment, food, process industries, security and defence. The design and study of molecular and supramolecular structures with molecular biorecognition and biomimetic properties for use in analytical devices is also included within the scope of the journal. Here the focus is on the complementary intersection between molecular recognition, nanotechnology, molecular imprinting and supramolecular chemistry to improve the analytical performance and robustness of devices.

On average, the annual publication volume is around 900 articles. Is this considered low?

First, conduct some research on the publication volume of the journal before making any statements. The latest impact factor is 12.545, with a total citation count of 79417.

"This is why nobody considers BB as a representative work when applying for national natural science grants (whether it's for young researchers or general researchers) when there are journals like ac, cc, lab chip."

This proposition itself is wrong. Whether or not BB is considered a representative work depends on whether the author has published any papers on BB.

Furthermore, do you have any survey data to support your conclusion? Did you conduct a project application? It's not enough to just make claims without evidence.

Lastly, do you have the ability to publish a BB paper yourself and give it a try?

I would like to inquire about the current status with the editor. A week ago, I found "View Reference Checking Results" in the system. When I clicked on it, it said, "Reference checking is done for journal citations. If the journal citation has a Scopus or CrossRef link, it has been validated. If 'Not validated' is displayed, the citation could not be validated and is probably not a journal citation."

Summarized Results:
Manuscript.pdf
File not processed - Microsoft Word cannot open the file.

However, the preview files I received after submission can be displayed normally. If there is an issue with the format, will the editor provide feedback? But it has been several days and there is no update from the editor. There is also no action available on the system. Has anyone encountered this before? Any suggestions?
